For seven years, the School of Leadership and Education Sciences has sponsored the annual Spotlight on Education: A Speaker Series. The series provides a space to hear and discuss world class, cutting edge, visionary thinking. It is a venue for principals and other site administrators, teacher leaders, central office administrators, university students, and professors of educational administration, as well as business leaders to hear the insights and perspectives from researchers and educators. The Spotlight Speaker Series provides an excellent opportunity for leadership teams at the district or school level to attend a session, return to their respective workplaces and engage in professional dialogue around topics and themes presented. The University of San Diego is pleased to report that educators from all of the 42 area school districts, local community colleges, and the County Office of Education have been participants at our sessions.
